PORTLAND, OR - SafePak Corporation, a provider of electronically monitored deposit retrieval systems, deposit stations, and ATM security products to the banking industry, introduces a new line of key control products, specifically targeting the auto service industry, fleet management, and dealerships.

The SafePak Electronic Key Control Systems are priced from $1,995 and up, handling from 5 keys to 500 keys. The KeyStations take several forms, from simple wall-mount and counter-top varieties to free-standing kiosks that are vault-like for maximum key security.

The SafePak Electronic Key Control Systems can be seen at the several national automotive trade shows including the NADA expo in Las Vegas this coming February. Response from the recent NACE show in Orlando and SEMA show in Las Vegas prompted the company to add several more key control products to their current line to satisfy several needs of the industry that were not met by other companies. In particular, the service industry was looking for a low-cost (less than $2,000) key control kiosk that would handle just a few keys.

SafePak's president, Buzz Siler, a seasoned inventor and entrepreneur, decided to pursue this market after years of creating one-off products for other industries. Throughout the last 20 years, he created the first remote access key dispenser for Cendant/Avis/Budget; a rental kiosk and lock dispenser for the self-storage industry; and specialized key dispensers for the aviation and hotel industry.

Siler commented, "We looked at all the competition's products in this key management field and saw a huge gap! We decided that, with the right investment in the latest technology, we could offer every feature that they did, but at much lower prices. Best of all, it's still made in America!"
